What to Consider About Assisted Living in Seguin

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services licenses two types of assisted living facilities in Seguin and in the rest of the state. These include Type A facilities for residents who don’t need overnight attendance and can follow directions in an emergency and Type B facilities for residents who need 24-hour monitoring and evacuation assistance in an emergency.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Seguin

  • Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, so Seguin seniors only pay federal taxes on their income, regardless of whether it comes from a pension, retirement account or investment. Although property taxes exceed national norms, seniors can avoid this expense by moving to residential care facilities. 
  • Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, located in Seguin proper, is an award-winning, full-service hospital that provides a range of specialties, including imaging and radiology, cardiology and rehabilitation services. The hospital also provides telemedicine services to enhance seniors’ access to care.  
  • Out of Texas’ 244 surveyed counties, Guadalupe County ranks 17th for health and sits in the 75-100th percentile for health factors and outcomes. The average life expectancy is about a year above state and national averages at 79.5, and the rate of preventable hospital stays is relatively low at 2,622 incidents per 100,000 patients. Although the county has a health care provider shortage, with only one provider per 3,350 residents versus the state average of 1:1,640 and the national norm of 1:1,310, seniors in assisted living typically have access to on-call physicians through their residential communities.
  • Living costs in Seguin trend about 9% below the national norm, making the city a viable option for those seeking budget-friendly assisted living. Although health care expenses run about 1% higher than in a typical U.S. city, residents spend 18% less on housing, 14% less on transportation and 13% less on utility costs, contributing to competitive assisted living rates.
  • Seguin offers relative comfort and favorability for seniors, earning it a 56 on the AARP Livability Index. The area has a comparatively high concentration of parks, libraries and grocery stores, and while the crime rate is a little higher than the national norm at 226.9 per 10,000 people versus 197.4 nationwide, it has dropped in recent years.
  • Seguin’s hot season lasts from late May through late September and has average temperatures between 89 and 96 degrees Fahrenheit, although temperatures may go as high as 101 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters are comfortable and mild with high temperatures between 62 and 69 degrees Fahrenheit, giving seniors opportunities to enjoy outdoor amenities.
